Rent Family, We were all saddened to hear of Aunt Joan's passing over the weekend. I know she had been battling with health issues, but with her passing I pray her soul may find peace. May the grace of God be with her and you all at this time.

I have fond memories of your mom coming to visit you in Minnesota. May she rest in peace.

Joan's family--she was such an example of a gracious and dignified lady. I will never forget her sly smile as she showed me her "tattoo". Thinking of her brings a smile and am thankful for having known her. She will always be in my heart as well as so many others who were blessed to know her. She is at peace now walking with her Lord and her loved ones.
